Walk Report

Summer Solstice Sunrise Hampstead, Overnight Saturday 20th/Sunday 21st June 2015
11 walkers, 15 miles - leader Adam Pode
Eleven night-owls joined Adam for this nocturnal outing to view the midsummer solstice. It was not quite as dark as the attached photo shows when the group arrived on Parliament Hill in time for the sunrise but, sadly, no sign of the sun unlike Stonehenge. The group enjoyed an early breakfast in Soho to complete the occasion.
